Noel Gallagher Claims His 'Cat Could Have Written Harry Styles' Single'

Noel Gallagher Claims His 'Cat Could Have Written Harry Styles' Single'




Oasis legend Noel Gallagher has never been known to mince his words.

His celebrity put-downs are almost as well-known as his hit records, and the songwriter has recently turned his attention to former One Direction star Harry Styles.

Talking about the young fella's first solo single, 'Sign Of The Times', Noel claimed that his cat could have penned the tune in 'about 10 minutes'.

The opinionated singer told Absolute Radio: "People of my age have let themselves go, they're fat, balding idiots with fading tattoos. They sit in their garage and write shite like 'Sign of the Times'for Harry Styles.

"Which, quite frankly, my cat could have written in about 10 minutes."

He added: "I don't mind the song, my wife was falling over herself, 'Have you heard Harry Styles' new song? It's like Prince', I was like, 'Without even hearing it, I can assure you it's not like Prince'."

Noel turned 50 earlier this week and celebrated with a 'Narcos themed party'.

The likes of Madonna, Bono and Stella McCartney joined the former Oasis star for the festivities.

Noel's brother Liam - who was not invited to the shindig - had nicer things to say about Styles' solo venture, however.

Liam told NME: "I don't mind it, man. There's some interesting bits in it. I mean, I don't know how it fucking goes, but fair play to him."

Last night, Liam returned to his hometown of Manchester to give people a first glimpse of his solo material.

In the intimate Manchester Ritz, he walked on stage to raucous applause and cheers, before going straight into 'Rock 'n' Roll Star', the first song from his former band Oasis' classic debut album, Definitely Maybe. Thriving on the atmosphere, he followed this up with a mixture of old and new tunes.

This was more than just a typical hometown gig, however. The singer was returning to the city where his career began, just one week after it had been rocked by a horrific act of terrorism.

Twenty-two candles graced the stage for the entire set, and in between songs the crowd erupted with renditions of 'Don't Look Back in Anger'.

The song became Gallagher's old band's second number one single in 1996, and has recently been revived as an anthem for Manchester in the wake of the attack. Chants of 'stand up for the 22' also broke out during the evening.

After bringing out former Oasis guitarist Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs for a rendition of 'Be Here Now' to close the show, Liam returned to perform a heartfelt a capella rendition of 'Live Forever' as an encore.
